  • Top Gear Speed

    Has any done the actual math to figure out how fast 11,000 rpm; 11,500 rpm;12,000 rpm is in 6th with stock gearing and stock size tires? Just curious.

    Umm... a GPS takes much less work.

      Yeah, I like mike GPS as well. I think he may be more curious how fast it will go without having to do it.....

          I agree, but not everyone wants to, or needs to be, experiencing warp speed. I live in New Orleans and its a 20 minute ride to the nearest place I can even think about topping it out......

              Top Speed

              I have a stock 99' TL1000R, my buddy just bought a new Kawi 636, so we decided to run them with a GPS. We were side by side, I noticed my speedo bouncing around 155 MPH. It's hard to look at the speedo at that speed. We were dead even, I was still pullin but we both let off and the GPS speed was 157. That is about all the nuts I have for that!!!! I am sure the TL1000R will do about 165 possibly.
              Be careful!!!!!!!!!!

                I´ve done ~170 on my Stock TLR (stock spockets, at least... ).
                (Measured with a bike speedo, the TLR gauge was at ~182mph)


                And I a gree with kivmax, be careful!!!
                Scary at that speed!

                  Will the TLR (stock) do 170? Holy crap, figured 165 was the limit.

                    I've seen 180 on the gauges with stock gearing.

                        Here's a chart of mine, observed for a TLS, easy to convert to a TLR, change the gearing in the boxes provided. Even better if you know your rear wheel OD.

                          I got dusted by some punk kid in his BMW M5. (Must be nice to have daddy buy you a $75,000 BMW) Anyway...

                          My bike is set as follows...

                          FULL Ti-Yosh system, K&N filter, Remap, IVAN's TRE, Air-box mod, and PAIR removed.

                          I was F.W.O. I could not see my needle, all I could see was 180mph, and a black object to my left, then a M5 emblem, then the whole rear end of the BMW, then... you get the point.

                          OVER 180mph speedo...
                          ACTUAL... I dunno, I did not have a GPS. Probibly 160-ish

                            Well, a M5 smoked us too...

                            Well well, my bike is $70.000 cheaper than that Beemer anyway...


                            kivmax:
                            I have stock spockets, but honestly I cant say that the bike is stock. Full M4 system, Öhlins rear, Brembo front brakes, carbonfibre fairings, no front light, no cooling fans, etc etc... does wonders with the weight of your bike
                            A bit more "stock" now since I have re-converted it for street use again. Would probably not do 182 again...
                            Maybe with the wind in my back, sun in the back, home sicknes, downhill, dinner on table - then Maybe it will do a 185...

                              Not sure about the actual speed, but I've seen 185+ indicated on the speedo and bouncing off the rev limiter in sixth with a 41 tooth rear...would be interesting to know the actual speed I was going.
